People have asked me this question many times on Facebook and in email: Could you please recommend a few books in French?
Yes, and here’s an episode dedicated to French books.
I picked books I’ve read, obviously with stories set in France and written by Francophone authors. And in six categories. Bonne lecture !
Today in Comme une Française, we’ll talk about a very loaded topic. Things that can get you into trouble if you bring them up with the wrong people. Or get you into endless hours of debate, French-style, with friends shouting at each other and and wine glasses flying.
Even I could get into trouble just for filming this video in Grenoble. 😀
I’ll show you a few absurd regional rivalries in France.
Those questions or very delicate topics no one agrees on. And that are an endless source of jokes.
First, super important message:
if you want to improve your French Conversation, don’t miss my email next week.
Now, today’s video is about holidaaayyyyyys!
It’ll be summer soon and summer in France means… les grandes vacances !
In French, “les grandes vacances” refers to the two months of summer holidays children have.
Today, we’ll see French words and expressions for talking about what you’ll do,
where you’ll stay and how you’ll travel, in France or anywhere else in the world!
On y va ?
Food is at the center of French culture.
The worst cultural faux pas are around food, and not appreciating it properly will be seen as… gross.
When you go to summer apéros, three-hour-long meals or endless dinners, you’ll hear French people around you appreciating the food and saying so.
What can YOU say to show your appreciation too? I’ll show you.
